Lotus Notes Agent "Before mail arrives agent" works when email comes from outside Notes system but not inside.

I have written a simple before mail arrives agent to look for a phrase in the email body and then change the subject.  Works perfectly if I go out to gmail and send an email into my email box.  But if I go to another Notes box and send an email to myself, it doesn't work.  

I have written dozens of these before and they have always worked, so I know the rules (only one per database, must be signed by someone who has rights to run agent on router/server).  

I know the agent has rights, etc. because it runs perfect when I email from gmail or some other outside email system.  But it doesn't work if the email comes from someone using Notes with a domain connection.  I know this because I sent an email to the mailbox from a client's system (using VNC) logged in as a client's user in their system (which is cross-certified with mine)..

Never seen this before.  Any ideas?
